Groundhog Day for Browns fans

If it's the week after the Super Bowl, then it means it is Christmas for Browns fans because it is time to talk about the upcoming NFL Draft.

Actually, it is more like Groundhog's Day because it is the same thing year after year after year.

Go after RGII? Trade up? Trade back? Trent Richardson at No. 4? Defense or offense?

Stop the madness. One year, just once, wouldn't it be nice to bask in the glow of a Super Bowl title in February, or at the very least, an appearance in the big game to talk about for a while? Does everything in this town have to revolve around the draft?

Oh, and if I hear one more talking head on radio or TV utter the phrase "It's the most important draft in team history" I am jumping into heavy traffic. I have heard that each year for the past decade. The draft is always important when it is all you look forward to 12 months a year. This one is MORE important because of Robert Griffin III available or might the Browns finally get a receiver?

I really don't get into it as much as others, although I will be interested in late April for sure. But it is so sad to have to go through this 2-month march toward the Draft every year with nothing to show for it the following fall.

One day, maybe we will talk about who is on the current roster of the Browns rather than always focusing on the college players that aren't here.
